‘True to their mission of community service, the fabulous California Conservation Corps (CCC) members volunteered on their day off to join our regular dog park volunteers and come out to El Chorro Dog Park to get some major work done for the dog park. Work included repairing a broken fence post, spreading wood chips (piles and piles of wood chips!) and repainting the handicapped-parking pad. They are truly dog park angels, and everyone who uses the park owes them a great big thank-you!” — Ann Calhoun
